Abstract : Long-term overwater winds were generated using data from land-based meteorological stations adjacent to Mississippi Sound. A parametric shallow-water wave model was developed and verified employing extensive measured wave data. The shallow-water wave model and the simulated wind fields were utilized to calculate 20 years (1956-1975) of hindcast wave data for 23 sites in Mississippi Sound. Analyses of the hindcast wave data are presented. (Author)
